GODFREY: Adam Gemmell - With profound sadness we announce the passing of Adam Gemmell Godfrey after a courageous battle with cancer on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at the age of 68.

Youngest son of Dr. Charles Godfrey and the late Margaret Gemmell Godfrey. Loving father of Alex and Kaia, with grandchildren MaKenna and Hudson; Son Charlie with their mother Lindsay Stocking  Godfrey; Sons Jackson and Dylan and their mother Sherry Smith Godfrey. Daughter Frazey Ford with grandson Saul.

Adam is survived by his brother Mark and Barb, nephew Jeramya.  His sister Kristen and  Nando. Adam had an amazing life.  He was  a mariner and charter fishing guide  that used his skills to sail the coasts of the Atlantic, Pacific and the Great Lakes.  As a coast guard auxiliary, he was often a last hope for many people. His ripple touched and help so many.

As per Adam’s request, cremation has taken place.  A Celebration of Life occured at his family’s farm in Madoc May 10.  Another one will be Saturday, May 18 from 2 – 4pm at The Sand Bar in Erieau.  A time for his Blenheim friends and family to gather to celebrate his life. The 3rd will be late June held on Gabriola Island with more family and friends. His ashes will be divided between these places that he loved most in life. 

Adam loved his family, and we will all miss him dearly. What a perfect day to go boating Dad, it’s clear sailing and the winds are favourable. Save us all room on your new yacht!
